[quote=BBC News]“To see the Secretary of State take time out of her insanely busy schedule to reach out to 13-year-old gay kids in little towns who are getting harassed by their families, their churches and the little bigots at their schools, that can really make a difference,” Savage said.
Mrs Clinton’s involvement is doubly important to Savage while policies exist to prevent gays from serving openly in the military and same-sex marriage.
“Discrimination against gays and lesbians on behalf of federal, state and local governments, cheered on by the Christian right, legitimises anti-gay bullying,” he says.
What do you think? Personally I agree with what he’s saying.
[Side-note: The attitude of many people on this forum to homosexuals has almost put me off joining the Catholic Church. To me, it is close to proof that Church teaching can legitimise bullying. For example, I have seen someone on this forum who identifies themselves as “Catholic” compare gay men to paedophiles, based on no proof or experience. Just predjudice. No one denounced what that member, just made corrections to his wording and asked some very calm questions.]
